Flower Boxes Painted

Yardwork has been the name of the game for the last week, and it’s still only partially done.

Looking back to 2020, hubby made me these primitive flower boxes for the front porch.
Back then I filled them with a new plant that I’d not grown before, Arizona Red Gaillardia! They were beautiful and the hummingbirds loved them.
They grew fast and I was so proud that I had grown them in my new boxes!
Last year they were full of coleus. This year they got a coat of paint and are now full of marigolds of bright orange and reds.

There’s two on each side of the porch with a pop of color in between.

The pot on each side of the porch has a red geranium, purple sweet potato plant and a green vine that all came from Walter’s Greenhouse.

The Hosta’s in front of the porch, as usual, are showing off their beauty. I think I may just live on my front porch as soon as it warms up.

I'm just a country girl living life my way on a farm with my husband and our critters. We've been married fifty years and been farming all of that time. We've moved from one family farm to one of our own and then to another family farm that has been in the family through at least six generations. In this day and age we could not have picked a better life!

  1. Iā€™m doing my planters and initial planting the next few days before going in for shoulder replacement surgery on Thursday. Between that and waiting for a new right hip, Iā€™m going to be praying for perfect growing conditions for everything but weeds for the rest of the season! šŸ™šŸ˜Š


      1. No, probably just overnight. The main problem is that it will put my right arm -and therefore to a large extend my hand – out of commission for a week or two. How will I blog??!!! šŸ˜‚ Thanks for your concern, Rita, and pray for those weeds to stay put!
